Covington, LA 70433

Chefs Carl Schaubhut and Jean Pierre Guidry, formerly of the kitchens of Cafe Adelaide and Commander's Palace, bring an Asian-Latin fusion to Covington in the form of Bacobar, which has locals lining up out the door and inspiring waves of New Orleanians to take that trip across the Causeway. The eponymous "bacos" are Asian-inspired tacos served in bao, and that's just the start of the tasty crossovers on this menu. Almost everything is touched by Cajun and Creole influence, and the chefs try to source their ingredients from as many local sources as possible. Plus, the cocktail list, created by Lu Brow of Brennan’s (and formerly Cafe Adelaide), is well worth checking out.
